[Update] Unfortunately, due to a flight delay, Charlene Li will be unable to make it tonight.
The parade of A-listers continues through Portland.
This time, it’s Charlene Li, co-author of Groundswell and (until very recently) a Forrester analyst focusing on social media.
Charlene will be in Portland to speak at the Internet Strategy Forum. And while I highly encourage you to attend the event, I wanted to let you know that you’ve also got the opportunity to meet Charlene in a more casual environment. At the Governor on Wednesday night.
This is one of those rare opportunities to spend time with one of the thought leaders in the industry. And truly one of the leading proponents for the corporate use of social media.
Geek or not, it’s not an opportunity that should be passed up. (Which, as cruel irony would have it, is the very thing that I will be doing.)
If you’re considering
meeting up tweeting up with Charlene (and I highly encourage you to take the chance to do so—or wasn’t that obvious?), please RSVP via Upcoming.
I’ll be living vicariously through your tweets, from my hotel room in Chicago.

When it comes to A-listers in social media, Charlene Li of Forrester Research is right up there. So I can totally understand why you’d jump at the chance to spend some time with her.
Well, the good news is that she’ll be coming to Portland. The better news is that you’ll get the chance to spend some time with her—in person and in hardback—but you have to act quickly.
Charlene is going to be speaking on “creating social strategies that work” at the Internet Strategy Forum Summit in Portland on July 17. (So that’s your in-person time.) And, now, Jive Software has offered a free copy of Charlene’s new book, Groundswell, (that’s your hardback time) to the first 250 people to register and attend the event. (You have to be there to get the book.)
Groundswell provides Charlene’s analysis of some of the top corporate uses of social media strategies within and without the “enterprise.”
And for that ever-popular “local flavor”? Groundswell also features Portland’s own Josh Bancroft and his social-media work at Intel.
Who knows? Maybe you could get Charlene and Josh to autograph it for you?
But wait, there’s more
So, you get time with Charlene Li and you get her book for free. What could be better?
